Despite reinstalls, reboots and powering my monitor, I have problems with my resolution when it gets down to 800x600 or lower I don't know what the problem is I've reinstalled my drivers and have played with the settings on the monitor to no end but the horizontal aspect is too large and so the picture becomes really tight at the ends.  I'm all lost what do I do what to I do???  Sorry for awarding so few points but they are all I have thus far.  Could someone please help me out with this I can't play some games normally because of this.

Problem could be the monitor or video card. Try the monitor in another system / try another monitor on yours. Could also try the generic super vga driver.

Perhaps the refresh rate is set too high?  I would try running in 800 x 600 at 75hz for a good starting place, then perhaps moving up to 85 or 100hz, if your video card / monitor support that.
